Can a 2.05 m tall person live together with a 1.70 m tall person? To research this question Wouter Corvers and Ilse Zuidinga decided to built there own house. At more than 2m tall, Wouter Corvers is beyond average, yet very aware of the norm when it comes to the scale of public space. Why is every bench, toilet and money machine made for a height of 1,77m, when mankind is much more diverse? In this project Wouter Corvers and Ilse Zuidinga (1.70m tall) tried to find a way to live together in a house they've built it them self. The height of the house is two times Wouter's length, the kitchen has two different heights and even the hooks of the coat rack are in a sloping line.
